The Detroit Red Wings are sending forward Jakub Vrana to a specialist Monday to look at his injured shoulder

Detroit Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said left wing Jakub Vrana will see a specialist Monday to determine the extent of his shoulder injury.

“I’ll have more of an update as I find out more relevant information,” Blashill said.

Vrana, expected to be the Red Wings’ top goal scorer, arrived late to training camp because of a visa problem and then was injured during his first practice.

In other news from Sunday’s Red and White game, Jonatan Berggren and Jared McIsaac were still sidelined with injuries.

“Berggren’s progressing, McIsaac’s progressing,” Blashill said. “Neither one of them will be in practice full tomorrow.”

Berggren, the seventh leading scorer in the Swedish Elite League last season, is one of the prize rookies the Red Wings wanted to look at in the preseason. 

Defenseman Marc Staal didn’t play in the scrimmage, but Blashill said the veteran was just given the day off.

Forward Bobby Ryan is on a tryout contract. Blashill said he thinks he’s “skating good.”

Could he make the team?      

“I certainly think there could be a path,” Blashill said.
